The Ingredients of E.I.

Postby Sabina » Thu Jan 07, 2010 7:53 pm

The Ingredients of Emotional Intelligence:

1 - Self-awareness: the cornerstone of emotional intelligence - a capacity to recognize your feelings as they occur.

2 - Emotional control: an ability to manage your emotional reactions, control impulse, and to recover from life's upsets.

3 - Self-motivation: skill at using your emotions in the service of a goal, staying hopeful despite setbacks.

4 - Empathy: emotional sensitivity to others; a talent for tuning into others' feelings, and reading their unspoken messages.

5 - Handling relationships: grace in dealing with others - strong social skills are the key to popularity, leadership, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Yes, Sabina, this is a very good start list.
I think that there is a kind of general criteria that could be helpful.
If we are able to contribute to somebody else's changes in the sense to help them to bring the best out of them and the same time recognize those who do the same for us, then we can be sure that our EI is high.

It's not advisable to be too sure of anything. :)

Ok, so the fifth point bothers me. When I hear (or read) the phrase "strong social skills" or "popularity"..

..I think I associate these with superficial aspects of life, so it's a personal problem (maybe?).
